Viewership up a lot the past week or more, but earnings going down? Ideas about why?
My hubs are getting more traffic daily than they used to, yet the past several days my earnings are well below my usual average. I am wondering why that may be? I do not have links on questionable sites etc. and most traffic is google, pinterest, other search engines etc.
I have the exact same problem. My earnings are down by about 80% of what they were previously with the same amount of traffic. Hope someone knows what's going on!
This has been happening to me also. I am earning less and less money on the same number of views, sometimes more views and less earnings.
They fixed mine now! Yay! That looks better!
How long did it take for your earnings to go back to normal?? Mine just went down making me worried...
I was wondering about this, as I too have had increased visitors, be decreased CPM. Which makes my earnings go down, when I am expecting them to go up! A bit disappointing!
My only idea would be to try to write using keywords that are higher paying, but I'm not sure that would make much of a difference if everyone is experiencing decreased CPM.
It seems you are the exact opposite of a lot of us. Everything has been down for around 3 weeks. I've seen several talking about this.
My views have gone up about 20-25% but the earnings are staying the same.
My CPM's dropped recently (the hubpages ad program one) and I have no clue why, since it's been steady for quite a while.
Maybe it's just something that's happening to a number of people?
Yesterday evening it appears some corrections were made and things are back closer to normal again. Hopefully it was just another little hiccup that is being ironed out. Sorry to hear so many are having traffic issues - that wasn't what happened with me so I was perplexed by the earnings drop, but it appears to be working itself out now.
Hmm.. todays earnings have have the same problem again. What's going on?
I haven't seen it myself again so I really don't know - perhaps it's just pending earnings and they'll go back up. Sometimes the stats get backed up a day or two. I'll keep my eyes peeled too good luck.
I've been on HP just over 6 months and have published 64 hubs, so I don't have a huge amount of data to spot trends, but the sleuth in me says it may be google tinkering with its algorithm.

I have on hub that steadily gets 100-200 visits a day, with sales of the direct product at least every other day or so. But for the past 15 days, while visits have remained steady, no sales. Just seems odd when for the...
